Valentino Rossi’s YZR-M1 MotoGP motorcycle is a highlight of a long list of the 2018 models to feature at the Sydney Motorcycle Show from Friday (November 24, 2017).
Just weeks after new models were unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show and EICMA show in Milan, most will be at the International Convention Centre Sydney.
Two bikes from the world’s most famous sportsmen will be Rossi’s MotoGP bike and MV Agusta’s road-going Lewis Hamilton Limited Edition F4 LH44.
Event organiser Troy Bayliss said the show would reveal an “unprecedented number” of new motorcycles during Friday’s ‘Media Walk’ from 10am-12.30pm.
“Each year the Friday ‘Media Walk’ is eagerly anticipated as manufacturers unveil the latest motorcycles in the world to Australian enthusiasts,” Bayliss says.
“Manufacturers remain tight-lipped in some cases even until Friday as they wait for the bikes to pass customs and be delivered directly to the show.
“To have Valentino Rossi’s bike at the show is incredible. It is extremely rare for these factory racing bikes to make it to Australia and we encourage all race fans to come and check it out, it may be the only chance you will get to see it up close.”
Apart from the new bikes, leading Australian motorcycle stuntman Robbie Maddison will recreated his famous riding-on-water stunt in Sydney’s Darling Harbour.
